I had no idea this garden was so big! It goes on for ever - or I should say, they go on forever. Individual gardens which are at their best at different times of the year is an inspired idea. We never did get right...More

Spent all too short a time exploring the many garden layouts, fountain and lake, tree lined borders, of this imaginative development near York. Well worth a visit for sheer pleasure, relaxation, garden ideas - and a good cafe too!
